Adults Want Their H1N1 Flu Shots, Too

Dr. Jonathan Parsons is spending a lot of time talking about the flu. "Every single patient that I see is perplexed to the nth degree about H1N1," said Parsons, a lung specialist and associate director of the Ohio State University Asthma Center. People with diseases that make them vulnerable to severe illness are worried and have been calling their doctors and health departments to ask why they can't get the H1N1 vaccine. The shortage of seasonal flu vaccine compounds their concerns, Parsons said. Dr. John Davis is also quoted.
